Tulips - Goals for 2010
* Work more expressively
* Leave more white space
* Retain looser look - more wet in wet
* Add people to my landscapes
* Learn new techniques
I have been extremely influenced by the work of Heather Withers (http://www.heatherwithers.com/) and hope to learn more of how she achieves such light in her work.
This is my second attempt and I like it better than my first.
I've not quite achieved that 'flow' I'm hunting for -- but I think I'm getting closer.
I return to work on Monday which means experimentation will have to wait until weekends -- and those weekends I"m not working ...but I look forward to seeing how these new ideas will influence my own paintings.
It's turned bitter cold here .. and we've a week of frigid weather ... mercy, if it's going to be so cold, let it snow! Meanwhile, I'll warm myself with spring and summer flowers ... and look for snowflakes!
Have a great day!
